Loaded Mac 'n Cheese

  Loaded Mac "n Cheese
It's perfect for a warm filling lunch.  It's also one of the ultimate comfort foods.  This dish is a creamy as it looks and has a wonderful flavor.  Give it a try today.  There's no way you'll be sorry.  Serves four, or stores well for a great sack lunch that will make you an envy of the office.

2 1/2 Cups uncooked Pasta (your choice)
6 Slices of Bacon (Mesquite Smoked is best)
1/4 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup diced hatch chillies
1/2 cup chopped onion
3 minced cloves of garlic
1/4 cup diced red pepper
1/4 cup diced green pepper
Salt, Pepper and 1 tbs dried cilantro
1 8oz container sour cream
2 cups cubed Velveeta cheese

Cook pasta according to directions.  Remove from pan into a strainer, do not rinse the noodles.  Cook bacon until crispy.  When done chop bacon into pieces and set aside.  Add  chilies, onion, garlic and peppers to 1 tablespoon of the bacon grease.  Stir constantly for approximately two minutes and add broth.   Allow broth to simmer until vegetables are tender but not over cooked.  Add salt, pepper and cilantro stirring in sour cream with a whisk.  Add cubed cheese and continue to stir with whisk until cheese is completely dissolved.  Return pasta to the pan adding more chicken broth if sauce is too thick.  Cook on a low heat for 10 more minutes stirring occassionally.
